And w/ very low expectations I will begin my listen...

What the hell. I have no bosses at work today. I will type off my first impression of these songs.

1. Kingmaker - I really like this song. The lyrics are kinda meh, but music is really great. Already better than anything off 13 IMO.
2. Supercollider - Prefer that Bon Jovi songs stay w/ Bon Jovi. No, not ever. Terrible.
3. Burn - Is he really saying "Burn Baby Burn"? I feel embarrassed for myself listening to this.
4. Built For War - Zzzzz...Only thing I remember is constantly hearing "Built for War" but everything else is unforgettable.
5. Off The Edge - Equally as bad as Built For War. Repetitive and unnecessary.
6. Dance In The Rain - More crap, running out of ways to call this bad.
7. The Beginning of Sorrow - No
8. The Black Crow - Next
9. Forget To Remember - Blah
10. Don't Turn Your Back -Less bad as 2-9, not as good as Kingmaker. Guess by default 2nd best song on album.
11. Cold Sweat - A very killer cover of a great Thin Lizzy track. Not enough TL songs off Thunder & Lightning are covered. Seems like the majority are just off Jailbreak or earlier albums.

This is pretty much what I think all of us were expecting. I might try to listen to all of this again (won't be soon however) and see if I've changed my mind but off of 1st listen this is not good. I still think there might have been 3 songs off 13 I liked. Only 2 off this and 1 is a cover so I can't even really count that.

I feel lied to that the 2nd half of the album was better.

My expectations were super low, and I listened to it on low volume because my grandma was over.

Sad thing is mine we really low too, and yet somehow I still feel very sad after listening to it. Draimain really needs to work on making his other bands awful and not Megadeth. They were doing a good job making mediocre music before him and now its a step lower than that. I also think I might blame a portion on Ellefson, (as sad as that makes me) they've made 2 of their worst albums in awhile since he came back and I know he definitely has a hand in the writing as well.

I don't think the album is as terrible as people are making it out to be, but it's still not a good listen. It's an incredibly boring album, even more so than Thirteen.

Mustaine should worry less about chemtrails and more about writing good songs.

Ok, so while album commentary isn't a new thing, this is the first time I've seen it released the same day as the album; if you need a good laugh, take an hour out of your day and take a listen


btw, I listened to SC; only song I can really get into is Kingmarker. Everything else makes me a sad panda
